NBA DFS 11/9/2021

Without further ado, here are three players to target and two to avoid in Tuesday, 11/9, NBA DFS action.

FanDuel Picks Tonight NBA - 11/9

Donovan Mitchell Fantasy

Target Donovan Mitchell, PG, Utah Jazz ($8,700): Tuesday's slate features only three NBA games and that means we must find tonight's stars. Theres' no better place to look than guard Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell leads the entire NBA with a ridiculous 35.3% usage rate. The Utah Jazz-Atlanta Hawks matchup could be the highest scoring affair on Tuesday based on the 222.5 over/under mark. Utah also ranks second in the NBA in offensive net rating while the Hawks defense rates 27th in defensive rating. Mitchell is scoring 25.8 points per game and averaging a career-high 5.3 assists per contest. He's well worth the price.

Reggie Jackson Fantasy

Target Reggie Jackson, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers ($6,100): We're looking for value thanks to some of our other pricer targets. The Clippers-Trail Blazers over/under is set at 221.5 and both teams could be in store for a lot of points as both rank top-10 in pace. Jackson has played legitimate starting minutes (35.3 per game) this season and all of his numbers are up as a result, including points (17.0), assists (4.3) and rebounds (3.7). We love the pace in this one and the production that Jackson offers you as a starting guard.

Andre Drummond Fantasy

Target Andre Drummond, C, Philadelphia 76ers ($7,200):  FanDuel did adjust Andre Drummond's salary for tonight's slate, but he's definitely still worth the price increase. Joel Embiid remains out of Tuesday night's contest against the Milwaukee Bucks and that means Drummond is potentially in line for 50-plus DFS points. At least that's what he's scored in his previous two starts this season. Milwaukee gives up the eighth-most rebounds (47.3) per game to opponents and this is an opportunity for Drummond to feast.

Trae Young Fantasy

Avoid Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks ($9,100): Although the Jazz-Hawks matchup is expected to be the highest-scoring matchup on tonight's slate, we must make note of Utah's defense. The Jazz rank 8th in defensive net rating while allowing the seventh-fewest points per game to opposing teams. That spells a tough matchup for a superior scorer off to a slow start. Young is shooting just 31.3% from deep and 42.3% from the floor. His 23.7 points per game is the lowest mark since his rookie season and that $9,100 price tag is too steep.

Jusuf Nurkic Fantasy

Avoid Jusuf Nurkic, C, Portland Trial Blazers ($6,900): Jusuf Nurkic continues to see his role in the Trail Blazers offense decrease as Portland leans more heavily into its trio of guards in Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Norman Powell. Nurkic's 19.6% usage percentage is the lowest of his six-year Blazers career and ranks just fourth on the team. The athletic big man is averaging just 11.5 points and 1.9 assists on less than 10 field goal attempts per game. The Clippers rank third in defensive net rating on a less than exciting matchup for Portland on Tuesday night.
